Registration and Try-outs will be held on Saturday, February 21st at 10 AM. If you are a new player in the league, you must tryout. You can preregister here. Click on the registration box on the right side of this page. Bring your registration fee: $40.00, a copy of birth certificate, a glove and wear baseball clothes. We will be doing a uniform payment plan again this year. 1/2 of the uniform cost will be due when uniforms are ordered, the other half will be due the day before they are picked up. This will give you up to a month or so to pay in full.
We are now offering online registration for the 2015 spring/summer season. The form is available in the online forms section in the menu on the left side of the page or the box in the upper right hand section of the page. If you register online, it will save time at registration the day of tryouts. Everyone who is not currently on a roster has to tryout. For more information e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Due to insurance regulations only players, coaches, and Dixie Officials are allowed on the playing field and/or the dugouts. Nobody is allowed to be on the field for practice or games that is not on a Hattiesburg Dixie Boys roster. The only time this is waived is in the event of an injury to a player, coach or umpire. This policy will be enforced this season. We have no choice due to insurance and safety reasons.
Hattiesburg 14's are the 2014 Dixie Boys World Series Champions. They are only the 3rd team to win both World Series titles. Hattiesburg had to defeat the host team, Bossier City, twice Weds to win the title. They pulled out a 10-3, 11 inning, 4 hour and 15 minute win in game one, that saw on field temps in the 110 degree range, a packed house and hostile crowd. The 2nd game was 4-4 going to the bottom of the 6th when we struck for 1 run on a Jo Jo Gray home run. The game and World Series ended with us throwing the tying run out at the plate on a single to center field.
Parking in front of the fence is a high risk. The City and the Optimist Club do not pay to replace broken windshields or windows. We have several broken each season. Park in these spots at your own risk.
